Rugby: Match at Dursley to raise money for National Star College



First published in Sport

DURSLEY will face Smiths (Gloucester) Ltd XV in an annual charity fixture on Saturday.

The game at Dursley, which will raise money for the National Star College in Cheltenham once again, will kick-off at 12.30pm with rolling subs to allow all who want to play some time on the pitch.

The Six Nations games will be showing in the clubhouse and raffle tickets will be on sale during the day.

Rebecca Smith, organiser of the event, said: "We have a lot of current and retired rugby players at Smiths, many of whom are Dursley players.

"This match gives us the opportunity of celebrating our links with Dursley RFC, while at the same time raising funds for our chosen charity the National Star College.

"Last year's game raised over £1,000 and I am hoping that we can top that on Saturday and enjoy a feast of rugby on a sunny spring day."
